 HB 155 - HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION FEES & HEARINGS                              
 The next order of business to come before the House State Affairs             
 Standing Committee was HB 155, "An Act relating to hearings before            
 and authorizing fees for the State Commission for Human Rights; and           
 providing for an effective date."                                             
 Number 1312                                                                   
 CHAIR JAMES explained there was a committee substitute (0-GH0045\E,           
 Lauterbach, 3/22/97).  It added the word "educational" to line 13,            
 page 1.                                                                       
 Number 1328                                                                   
 PAULA HALEY, Executive Director, Alaska State Commission for Human            
 Rights, was the first person to testify via teleconference in                 
 Anchorage.  She did not have a copy of the committee substitute in            
 front of her.  She was able to get letters to all of the committee            
 members answering some of their questions.  In the letters, she               
 included the fact that the commission would not be opposed to                 
 reinserting the words "education" and "training" in front of the              
 word "services," in AS 18.80.060(b)(4).  She asked Chair James                
 whether that was what the committee substituted proposed.                     
 Number 1358                                                                   
 CHAIR JAMES replied that the committee substitute only added the              
 word "educational".  She believed the word "educational" also                 
 included the meaning of training.                                             
 MS. HALEY said she agreed.                                                    
 Number 1405                                                                   
 REPRESENTATIVE BERKOWITZ moved to adopt the proposed committee                
 substitute (0-GH0045\E, Lauterbach, 3/22/97) as a working document.           
 There was no objection; the committee substitute was so adopted.              
 Number 1425                                                                   
 REPRESENTATIVE VEZEY moved that HB 155, as amended, move from the             
 committee with individual recommendations and the attached zero               
 fiscal note(s).  There was no objection; CSHB 155(STA) moved from             
 the House State Affairs Standing Committee.
